  1. CT rear bumper is not a bumper

    I agree that most skid plates on trucks and jeeps are metal, but for SxS the best skid plates are 3/8'' or 1/2'' UHMW (ultra high molecular weight) plastic. It's quieter and more durable thank aluminum. It definitely protects from boulders, etcj as mine has protected my ranger from countless...
  2. Ventilated seats.

    Ventilated seats are pretty much a requirement in Texas summers. It makes a huge difference on comfort.
  3. Any updates?

    I just hope I can fit a nice size Yeti cooler in it. That way when I haul bulky stuff in the bed, the Yeti is in an easily accessible location.
  4. 📸 Cybertruck Spotted at Giga Texas Plant! + Interior Look with Yoke Steering Wheel and Performance Pedals!

    There was a photo on the second floor, but this one appears to be on the bottom floor. Look to the right and it is at ground level, as evidenced by the ground water just outside the slab. I could be looking at it wrong :unsure:. I still believe it was from the same day, though.
  5. NJRE pointing out the obvious, yet so many people IRL are deliberately ignorant!!! https://youtu.be/tfihgsJOiD0

    Most buyers do their research on youtube these days. I know I do it for everything that costs significant money. I wanted to buy a new compound bow this year. I can find countless number of youtube channels that do reviews of every bow I might consider getting. When I buy a new vehicle, I do...
  6. What would prevent your purchase?

    If the range for CT3 is lower than the 500+ that was promised at reveal, then I would consider cancelling my order. If I wanted a 300+ mile truck, I can just go get the F150 lightning or the GMC SilvErado when it comes out. The other things I highly value from the CT that would get me thinking...
  7. Will the truck come with a full size spare?

    It seems to me that a lot of people don't realize how large a 35 x 12.5 tire is. On my 3/4 ton truck, I have to deflate the tire fully to get it to fit in the spare tire area. The F150 lightning comes with a 33" tire (32.8" diameter to be exact) and it barely fits in that compartment behind the...
  8. Tire size?

    What will come at delivery depends on how the CT wants to be perceived. Road truck or off-road capable... If they want a road truck perception, then they will offer the street tires other truck mfg. offer...you know...the ones that guys that hit dirt every once in a while get rid of...
  9. Tire size?

    I'm fairly certain they are a special made 35 x 12.5 r18 Wrangler MTR with Kevlar on the prototype:
  10. Cyberquad ATV will be available at Cybertruck launch

    I'll leave this here...Polaris Ranger old EV tech (it sucks in comparison to ICE version) https://ranger.polaris.com/en-us/ranger-ev/ Coming this year will be Polaris Ranger new EV tech...which looks to be amazing. https://ranger.polaris.com/en-us/new-electric-ranger/ I saw Rich from Rich...
  11. F150 Lightning Predictions

    IIRC, the payload for all variants of CT is 3500 lbs, compared to 2000 lbs for the F150L. I agree, the specs are not weak when compared with ICE 1/2 ton trucks, but the CT will have much more payload and towing capacity in trimotor variant. The dual motor will have similar towing specs but...
  12. F150 Lightning Predictions

    Those specs will appeal to a lot of people. The frunk being so large will appeal to truck guys that don't want to have a tonneau cover on the bed of the truck but want to keep certain items out of the elements. The towing specs and payload are a bit weak when you compare to the CT, but in-line...
  13. Video: Cybertruck Lowered Rear Air Suspension and Drops Tailgate Ramp @ Giga Texas

    I just re-watched the Jay Leno's Garage episode. Elon took a large step onto the fully lowered tailgate (looked beyond 90 Deg open). The suspension did not look lowered and Elon took a large step to get on the tailgate. Elon is 6'2" tall. Taking these factors into account, I would...
  14. Video: Cybertruck Lowered Rear Air Suspension and Drops Tailgate Ramp @ Giga Texas

    My issue with the step in the side of the tailgate is that it really doesn't offer much of a lower entry point than the tailgate. All other step designs drop the first step at least a foot lower than the tailgate. If the back squats quickly (like within 10 seconds) and drops down a foot, then...
  15. Video: Cybertruck Lowered Rear Air Suspension and Drops Tailgate Ramp @ Giga Texas

    This is the one that made me like the ramp. I wonder if this is a render. Note that it does not have the gripping plates on the ramp that we've seen in the prototype ever since the unveiling. Every action shot I've seen has a steeper angle. If we got the angle that shows in the pic in real...
